The owner of a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado pickup contacted the Waco Police Department to report that her vehicle was stolen. The owner parked her Chevrolet in her driveway and when she returned to it she found it missing.

The Waco PD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Chevrolet.

Later, officers from the Dallas Police Department picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Chevrolet pickup with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the stolen Chevrolet pickup and observed it traveling southbound in the 3000 block of S Hampton Rd. Officers were able to stop the stolen Chevrolet pickup and detain the driver, who had the keys to it. This is an ongoing investigation.

The LoJack® System was installed in the Chevrolet Silverado in November 2005 at El Dorado Motors in McKinney, Texas.
